January 2020 we packed our bags, hopped on a bus and then took a ferry from Chetumal, Mexico to the beautiful island of Caye Caulker, Belize to photograph our friends Alyson & John for their destination wedding.

The following is a blog post about that adventure.

We arrived at the San Pedro, Belize customs and immigration office after a full day of bus rides, taxi trips and the ferry from Chetumal. While doing our research on how to get to Caye Caulker from Mexico we learned that there was a small shop at this dock where we could buy beers. After such a long day of travelling there was nothing better than a couple of cold Belikans and this beautiful sunset.

The road to Wish Willy’s is a quiet one on the North-Western side of Caye Caulker. There is a cute playground (to the left) and a few other small hostels/hotels. We loved coming back to this view after a day of exploring.

The view from our deck at Wish Willy’s. It was so nice to step out of our rental and start each day with this view. These are the tables that guests at the restaurant would use. To the left, under the pink building was the bar where you can get your own drinks. Just make sure you keep track of your tab.

The view from Wish Willy’s private dock. We enjoyed dinner here and used this space for during Alyson & John’s first look and newlywed photos. Sunsets here are spectacular!

Maggie’s Sunset Kitchen was the perfect place to grab our first real meal on Caye Caulker after arriving the previous day.

When you visit Caye Caulker you need to try their Fry Jacks. There are many spots where you can buy them but this was our favorite. Errolyn’s House Of Fryjacks was delicious. It’s fried, it’s salty, it’s probably really unhealthy but DAMN is it ever delicious.

When we weren’t eating tasty food we spent our days walking and exploring the island. Having sand roads and everyone taking it slow was such a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Playa del Carmen.

Alyson & John were kind enough to tread everyone visiting for their wedding with a sunset boat cruise.

Most mornings we’d grab coffee from Ice N Beans Cafe. One of the few places open at 6am.

Best guy to buy “special brownies” from. This guy hustles and you can hear him from a mile away.
